 The more profound the truth, the more difficult time we have in grasping it wholly...  As believers, we find that we sometimes have a very difficult time "wrapping our minds around" the mysteries of salvation... What do you do about divine election?  How about some being called of God to salvation,  known as the idea of 'predestination' versus folks who have not had "the call" and may never come to faith in Christ?  Our challenge then, as believers, is not to try to know absolutely everything about everything, but to do what we can to understand each step as the Lord presents it to us.  Romans tells us that we have been chosen from the beginning and we are His, not the enemy's.  1 John 4:10 reminds us that first He loved us and then called and brought us to Him through His love. He called us, not we found Him--He wasn’t lost, we were!  We couldn’t love Him until He first loved us… There is a deep and profound mystery in our faith in Jesus.  Now we see a little, and step by step we will understand more and more.  Our challenge is to not 'bite off more than we can chew' but to just do the next right thing, take the next clear step, ignore the temptation to disbelieve because we may not currently understand, and realize our enemy goes often before the throne of heaven to accuse us before our Lord.  Our challenge is to believe the Word of God and give the devil no place.  It can be done if you put all your trust in the truth of the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.
